As a bmxer, one of the most despicable things you can do is steal someone else's bike. Its just wrong. I dont care what your excuse, whether "words were exchanged" or if you are "Beefin" you dont take someones bike. There are always other alternatives to dealing with a situation.
Yesterday, a bike was stolen at clocktower by someone I and the other posters on this board know. That person has always been cool with me and I had never thought of him as a 'bike stealer' but I guess you never know. The person's who's bike was stolen is only 15 years old and not from the city. Stealing a 15 year olds bike for whatever reason is absolutely ridiculous.
Anyways, rats get ratted out. This is bullshit. One of the things I love about bmx, is the bond it creates with different people. I meet tons of people through riding and the common bond of riding a bike always promises good times and sometimes making good lasting friends. Bike stealing is an ugly act and violates that bond. I don't want to feel like i need to watch my back around other riders. we should be family.
Give the bike back. We dont need an excuse or explination. Just the bike. or don't give it back. But we know you took it. so you don't need to pretend.
